7:03am
>> i could never think of doing anything like that. if i knew that my brother was doing this, i would not be, i i would not -- in a minute, i would call the cops because that ain't right. if i knew, i would have reported it. brother or no brother. >> reporter: now ariel castro is mounting his defense. over the weekend holding a private jailhouse meeting with his new lawyer, craig weintraub, a veteran defense attorney who specializes in sex crimes. some legal experts say, after castro reportedly confessed, one of his only options may be an insanity defense. >> we'll have to prove he couldn't tell the difference between right and wrong in ohio for every day for this ten-year period. it would be very difficult to establish that. the next best thing is to remove the death penalty situation and agree to a plea. >> plea guilty, prosecutor takes the death penalty off the table and he serves life.
7:04am
>> and you save the victims of reliving the trauma of reliving this event in a public forum. >> reporter: so far the victim have avoided the spotlight, but now an update on what they're doing. in a statement, amanda says, "i am so happy to be home with my family." gina, "i want to thank everyone for all your prayers" and from michelle "i am healthy, happy and safe." their spokesman now pleading for their privacy. >> give them the time, the space and the privacy so that they can continue to get stronger. >> reporter: police want to open seymour avenue soon but they have a problem, they have to keep people out of that house. there may still be evidence in there. so now, matt, the city is building a 10 to 12-foot fence around it to keep the public out. >> thank you so much. new details on two controversial issues facing the obama administration now. peter alexander is nbc's white house correspondent. good morning to you. >> reporter: good morning to you. these days the white house would

7:06am
expected to say that irs officials were aware of the targeting as early as 2011, contradicting former denials by the irs commissioner. >> this should send chills up your spine. this is something we cannot let stand. >> reporter: the white house called the irs's actions inappropriate and supports the investigation. fewer than four months since his ambitious public address he's facing obstacles. >> as mark twain said, rumors of my demise may be a little exaggerated at this point. >> reporter: some ask is president obama falling victim to the second-term curse. he wouldn't be the first. from watergate to iran-contra, even bill clinton's impeachment, second terms have been notoriously difficult. >> the presidents who weathered the crises best are those that do not let themselves get distracted. >> reporter: this morning the white house is hosting british prime minister david cameron for
7:07am
a series of meetings, and it will be followed up, savannah, by a press conference in the rose garden, where it's almost certain the president will be asked about the talking points regarding benghazi and misconduct within the irs. >> peter alexander at the white house, thank you. we're following developing stories, the mother's day parade in new orleans where there was a shooting, and i know police are looking for the suspects. >> just an awful suspect there, matt. >> at least 19 people were wounded in the gunfire at the parade in new orleans. nbc's gabe gutierrez has more. >> reporter: today in new orleans a manhunt is under way after a mother's day celebration ended in chaos. >> we were all just standing out and shots started ringing out and everybody started running. >> reporter: the gunfire erupted at a parade where there was a police presence. no one was killed but at least 19 people were wounded, many grazed by bullets, a 10-year-old boy and a 10-year-old girl are among the injured. police are now searching for three people seen running from the scene. >> it appeared that these two or three people just for a reason
7:08am
unknown to us started shooting at, towards or in the crowd. >> reporter: this shooting comes after similar incidents at public events in new orleans earlier this year. in january, five people were shot after a martin luther king day parade. >> it really needs to stop. >> reporter: and before mardi gras on bourbon street four people were hurt when gunmen opened fire. >> it's important for us to change the culture of death on the streets of new orleans to a culture of life, and it's going to take an all hands on deck approach. >> reporter: as for the most recent shooting police aren't sure whether certain people in the crowd were targeted or the gunshots were random. either way the violence hard to take in on mother's day. for "today," gabe gutierrez, nbc news. an overnight house fire just outside of philadelphia has killed at least six people, including four children. four firefighters were also injured battling the powerful blaze. the cause of the fire is now under investigation.

7:16am

bacon, bacon, bacon. i'd get it myself, but i don't have thumbs. savannah? >> al, thank you. at 32, jessica decanon was doing exactly what she always hoped to do, humanitarian work in the war-torn country of somalia. while there, her dream of making a difference was suddenly derailed by a very serious turn of events. october 25th, 2011, jessica buchanan and danish aid worker paul sisted were returning home from a training session when they were kidnapped at gunpoint by somali land pirates and taken hostage. this chilling proof of life video was releaseded by their captors, who were demanding a $45 million ransom payment. after 93 days in captivity in unsanitary conditions, jessica's health was deteriorating. with no time to lose, president obama ordered the u.s. military to launch a secret rescue operation. s.e.a.l. team 6, the same group that took out osama bin laden in
8:37am
2011, swept into the area and took the kidnappers by surprise, igniting a tense exchange of gunfire. the s.e.a.l.s killed all nine of the kidnappers, and jessica and paul were rescued unharmed. president obama was preparing for his state of the union address when he was informed the hostages were in u.s. hands. as he entered the capitol that night, he congratulated secretary of defense leon panetta for his help with the successful mission. >> good job tonight. good job tonight. >> the president is seen in this photo calling jessica's father john to inform him that his daughter was safe and on her way home. jessica buchanan and her husband, eric, write about that experience in her new book "impossible odds." good morning. it's good to see both of you. boy, go back to that time, jessica, that you were on your way. you knew you were in an area that was potentially dodgy. did you have a bad feeling about it? >> i did have a bad feeling in the sense that i was in an area
8:38am
that held a lot of insecurity, but never did i ever imagine that something such as an abduction would take place. >> so take us back to that moment. suddenly, you're surrounded. >> completely surrounded, yelling, screaming, hitting windshields at ak-47 this is an nbc news special report. and good morning, everyone. president obama's about to hold a joint news conference with british prime minister david cameron. they'll do that in the east room of the white house momentarily. >> that's right. we understand both gentlemen will make a statement, and then take a question apiece from each nation's press corps assembled there. chuck todd is there. good morning to you. what are you expecting from this news conference? >> reporter: well, good morning, savannah and matt. on the issue that they're
8:39am
talking about, as far as the bilateral back-and-forth between the british and the united states, syria is top of mind on their conversation. but as far as questions for the president, this will be the first opportunity anybody in the press corps's had a chance to ask the president about the irs scandal in that report that indicates the irs was targeting conservative groups and questioning them over and above other groups when it comes to nonprofit tax status. of course, the ongoing investigation having to do with the benghazi -- not just the talking points, but in the aftermath of the benghazi attack itself. so the question part of this presser is going to have a lot of news interest to a lot of folks on capitol hill, but syria, don't forget, is a big issue both countries are dealing with. >> real quickly, how many questions are they expected to take? we've heard ideas they may limit this. >> reporter: they'll limit it to one questioner. as savannah knows, you say, "mr. president, i have one question with three or four parts."
8:40am
>> i suspect -- >> reporter: i suspect any one of my colleagues here, whoever gets the question, has a three-parter ready. >> chuck, we've seen this scandal with the irs kind of blowing up over the weekend. is this the first opportunity the president has had to address it, at least on camera? >> reporter: well, there was an on-camera event last friday afternoon where you could make -- you could make the judgment call that that was an opportunity. he was doing a separate healthcarry vent, but that was the first time he was in front of the camera. he could have said something there. i think the administration does agree with the criticism that's been out there over the weekend they've been slow in responding to this, slow in taking the irs to task. as you noticed, it's been the republicans hopping on this story. democrats in general have been very slow this morning. though, you hear more and more democratic lawmakers also expressing the outrage that you heard from conservatives and republicans over the weekend. >> and, chuck, as we're waiting for the president and the prime minister to walk out, the subject of benghazi and the administration -- let's listen to what the two gentlemen have to say.
8:41am
>> good morning, everybody. please have a seat. and to all our moms out there, i hope you had a wonderful mother's day. it's always a great pleasure to welcome my friend and partner, prime minister david cameron. michelle and i have wonderful memories from when david and samantha visited us last year. there was a lot of attention about how i took david to march madness. we won't to ohio, and a year later we had to confess that david still does not understand basketball. i still do not understand cricket. as we've said before, the great alliance between the united states and the united kingdom is rooted in shared interests and shared values, and it's indispensable to global security and prosperity. but as we've seen again recently, it's also a partnership of the heart. here in the united states we joined our british friends in mourning the passing of baroness margaret thatcher, a great champion of freedom and liberty
8:42am
and of the alliance we carry on today. and after the bombings in boston, we americans were grateful for the support of friends from around the world, particularly those across the atlantic. at the london marathon, runners paused in a moment of silence and dedicated the race to boston, and david will be visiting boston to pay tribute to the victims and the first responders. so, david, i want to thank you and the british people for reminding us that in good times and in bad, our two people stand at one. david's here first and foremost as he prepares to host the g8 next month. i appreciate him updating on the agenda as it takes shape, and we discussed how the summit will be another opportunity to sustain the global economic recovery with the focus on growth and creating jobs for our people. michelle and i are looking forward to visiting northern ireland, and i know that the summit's going to be a great success under david's fine leadership. we discussed the importance of
8:43am
moving ahead with the e.u. towards negotiations on the trans-atlantic trade and investment partnership. our extensive trade with the u.k. is central to our broader trans-atlantic economic relationship, which supports more than 13 million jobs. and i want to thank david for his strong support for building on those ties, and i look forward to launching negotiations with the e.u. in the coming months. i believe we've got a real opportunity to cut tariffs, open markets, create jobs, and make all of our economies even more competitive. with regard to global security, we reviewed progress in afghanistan, where our troops continue to serve with extraordinary courage alongside each other, and i want to commend david for his efforts to encourage greater dialogue between afghanistan and pakistan, which is critical to regional security. as planned, afghan forces will take the lead for security across the country soon, this spring. u.s., british, and coalition forces will move into a support
8:44am
role. our troops will continue to come home and the war will end by the end of next year, even as we work with our afghan partners to make sure that afghanistan is never again a haven for terrorists who would attack our nations. given our shared commitment to the middle east peace, i updated david on secretary kerry's efforts with pakistanis with regard to negotiations, and we reaffirmed our support for democratic transitions in the middle east and north africa, including the economic reforms that have to go along with political reforms. of course, we discussed -- we discussed syria and the appalling violence being inflicted on the syrian people. together we're going to continue our efforts to increase pressure on the assad regime, to provide humanitarian aid to the longsuffering syrian people, to strengthen the moderate opposition and to prepare for a
8:45am
democratic syria without bashar assad, and that includes bringing together regime and the opposition in geneva in the coming weeks to agree on a transitional body, which would allow a transfer of power from assad to this governing body. meanwhile, we'll continue to work to establish the facts around the use of chemical weapons in syria and those facts will help guide our next steps. we discussed iran where we agreed to keep up the pressure on tehran for its continued failure to abide by its nuclear obligations. the burden is on iran to engage constructively with us and our partners in order to resolve the world's concerns about its nuclear program. and finally, today, we're reaffirming our commitment to global development, specifically we're encouraged by the ambitious reforms under way of the global fund to fight aids, tb and malaria, where both of our nations are stepping up our efforts, and david's made it clear the g8 summit will be
8:46am
another opportunity to make progress on nutrition and food security. so, david, thank you very much, as always, for your leadership and your partnership, as we prepare for our work in northern ireland, as we consider the challenges we face around the world, it's clear we face a demanding agenda, but the if the history of our people show anything, it is that we persevere as one of those london runners said, at the marathon, we're going to keep running, and we're going to keep on doing this. that's the spirit of confidence and resolve that we will continue to draw upon as we work together to meet these challenges. so, david, thank you very much, and welcome. >> thank you very much, barack. thank you for the warm welcome. it's great to be back here with you in the white house. thank you for what you said about margaret thatcher. it was a pleasure to welcome so many americans to her remarkable funeral in the u.k. i absolutely echo what you said about the appalling outrage in boston. i look forward to going there to pay my tribute to the people of that remarkable city and their courage, and we will always
8:47am
stand with you in the fight against terrorism. thank you for the remarks by the cricket and the basketball. i haven't made much progress. i made a bit of progress on baseball. i actually read a book about it this year. so maybe next time we'll work on that one. it's good to be back for the first time since the american people returned you to office. and as you said, the relationship between britain and the united states is a partnership without parallel. day in and day out throughout the world, our diplomats and intelligence agencies work together, our soldiers serve together, and our businesses trade with each other. in afghanistan, our armed forces are together defending the stability that will make us all safer, and in the global economic race, our businesses are doing more than $17 billion of trade across the atlantic every month of every year. and in a changing world, our nations share a resolve to stand up for democracy, for enterprise, and for freedom.
8:48am
we've discussed many issues today, as the president has said. let me highlight three. the economy, the g8, and syria. our greatest challenge is to secure a sustainable economic recovery. each of us has to find the right solutions at home. for all of us, it means dealing with debt, it means restoring stability, getting our economy growing, and together seizing new opportunities to grow our economies. president obama and i have both championed a free-trade deal between the european union and the united states, and there's a real chance now to get the process launched in time for the g8. so the next five weeks are crucial. to realize the huge benefits this deal could bring, will take ambition and political will. that means everything on the table, even the difficult issues and no exceptions. it's worth the effort for britain alone an ambitious deal could be worth 10 billion pounds a year, boosting industries from car manufacturing to financial services. we discussed the g8 summit in
8:49am
some detail. when we mean on the shores of lough erne five weeks from today, i want us to agree ambitious action for economic growth. open trade is at the heart of this, but we have a broader agenda, too, to make sure everyone shares in the benefits of this greater openness, not just in our advanced economies but in the developing world, too. i am unashamedly pro-business politician, but as we open up our economies to get business growing, we need to make sure that all companies pay their taxes properly and enable citizens to hold their governments and businesses to account. today we've agreed to tackle the scourge of tax evasion. we need to know who really owns a company, who profits from it, whether taxes are paid, an we need a new mechanism to track where multinationals make their money and pay their taxes, so we can stop those manipulating the system unfairly. finally, we discussed the brutal conflict in syria. 80,000 dead, 5 million people forced from their homes.
8:50am
syria's history is being written in the blood of her people. and it is happening on our watch. the world urgently needs to come together to bring the killing to an end. none of us have any interests in seeing more lives lost, in seeing chemical weapons used, or extremist violence spreading even further. so we welcome president putin's agreement to join an effort to achieve a political solution. the challenges remain formidable, but we have an urgent window of opportunity before the worst fears are realized. there is no more urgent international task than this. we need to get syrians to the table to agree to a transitional government that can win the consent of all of the syrian people, but there will be no political progress unless the opposition is able to withstand the onslaught and put pressure on assad so he knows no military victory, so we will also increase our efforts to support and to shape the moderate opposition. britain is pushing for more flexibility in the e.u. arms embargo, and we will double
8:51am
nonlethal support to the syrian opposition in the coming year. armored vehicles, body armor, and power generators are right to be shipped. we're helping local councils govern the areas they liberate, and we're supporting lebanon and jordan to deal with the influx of refugees. we'll also do more for those in desperate humanitarian need, care for trauma injuries, helping torture victims to recover, getting syrian families drinking clean water, having access to food, to shelter. there is now, i believe, common ground between the u.s., u.k., russia, and many others that whatever our differences, we have the same aim -- a stable, inclusive, and peaceful syria free from the you scourge of extremism. there is real political will behind this. we now need to get on and do everything we can to make it happen. barack, thank you once again for your warm welcome. >> thank you. we've got time for a couple of questions. we're going to start with julie pace. >> thank you, mr. president. i wanted to ask about the irs
8:52am
and benghazi. when did you first learn that the irs was targeting conservative political groups? do you feel that the irs has betrayed the public's trust? and what do you think the repercussions for these actions should be? and on benghazi, newly public e-mails show the white house and the state department appear to have been more closely involved with the crafting of the talking points on the attack than first acknowledged. do you think the white house misled the public about its role in shaping the talking points? and do you stand by your administration's assertions that the talking points were not purposefully changed to downplay the prospects of terrorism? and prime minister cameron, on syria. if the e.u. arms embargo you mentioned is amended or lapses, is it your intent to send the opposition forces weapons, and are you encouraging president obama to take the same step? thank you. >> well, let me take the irs situation first. i first learned about it from the same news reports that i think most people learned about this. i think it was on friday.
8:53am
and this is pretty straightforward. if, in fact, irs personnel engaged in the kind of practices that have been reported on and were intentionally targeting conservative groups, then that's outrageous, and there's no place for it. you know, they have to be held fully accountable, because the irs as an independent agency requires absolute integrity, and people have to have confidence that they're applying it in a nonpartisan way -- applying the laws in a nonpartisan way. and you should feel that way regardless of party. i don't care whether you're a democrat, an independent, or a republican. at some point, there will be republican administration -- administrations. at some point, there will be democratic ones. either way, you don't want the irs ever being perceived to be
8:54am
biassed, and anything less than neutral, in terms of how they operate. so this is something that i think people are properly concerned about. the i.g. is conducting its investigation, and, you know, i am not going to comment on their specific findings prematurely. but i can tell you that if you've got the irs operating in anything less than a neutral and nonpartisan way, then that is outrageous. it is contrary to our traditions, and people have to be held accountable, and it's got to be fixed. so we'll wait and see what exactly all the details and the facts are. but i've got no patience with it. i will not tolerate it, and we'll make sure that we find out exactly what happened on this. with respect to benghazi, we've
8:55am
now seen this argument that's been made by some folks, primarily up on capitol hill, for months now. and i've just got to say, here's what we know. americans died. in benghazi. what we also know is clearly they were not in a position where they were adequately protected. the day after it happened, i acknowledged that this was an act of terrorism. and what i pledged to the american people was that we would find out what happened, we would make sure that it did not happen again, and we would make sure we held accountable those who had perpetrated this terrible crime.
8:56am
and that's exactly what we've been trying to do. and over the last several months, there was a review board headed by two distinguished americans -- mike mullin and tom pickering, who investigated every element of this. and what they discovered was some pretty harsh judgments in terms of how we had worked to protect consulates and embassies around the world. they gave us a whole series of recommendations. those recommendations are being implemented as we speak. the whole issue of this -- of talking points, frankly, throughout this process has been a sideshow. we have been very clear throughout was that immediately after this event happened, we were not clear who exactly had carried it out, how it -- how it had occurred, what the motivations were. it happened at the same time as
8:57am
we had seen attacks on u.s. embassies in cairo, as a consequence of this film. and nobody understood exactly what was taking place during the course of those first few days. and the e-mails that you allude to were provided by us to congressional committees. they reviewed them several months ago, concluded that, in fact, there was nothing afoul in terms of the process we had u d used, and suddenly, three days ago, this gets spun up as if there's something new to the story. there's no there there. keep in mind, by the way, these so-called talking points that were prepared for susan rice five, six days after the event occurred pretty much matched the
8:58am
assessment that i was receiving at that time in my presidential daily briefing, and keep in mind that two to three days after susan rice appeared on the sunday shows, using these talking points, which have been the source of all this controversy, i sent up the head of our national counterterrorism center, matt olson, up to capitol hill and specifically said it was an act of terrorism, and that extremist elements inside of libya had been involved in it. so if this was some effort on our part to try to downplay what had happened or tamp it down, that would be a pretty odd thing, that three days later we end up putting out all the information that, in fact, has
8:59am
now served as the basis for everybody recognizing that this was a terrorist attack and that it may have included elements that were planned by extremists inside of libya. who executes some sort of cover-up or effort to tamp things down for three days? so the whole thing defies logic, and the fact that this keeps on getting churned out, frankly, has a lot to do with political motivations. we've had folks who have challenged hillary clinton's integrity, susan rice's integrity, mike mullin, and tom pickering's integrity. it's a given that mine gets challenged by these same folks. they've used it for fund-raising. and, frankly, you know, if anybody out there wants to actually focus on how we make sure something like this does not happen again, i am happy to
9:00am
get their advice and information and counsel. but the fact of the matter is these four americans, as i said, right when it happened, were people i send into the field. and i've been very clear about taking responsibility for the fact that we were not able to prevent their deaths. and we are doing everything we can to make sure we prevent it, in part because there are still diplomats around the world who are in very dangerous, difficult situations. and we don't have time to be playing these kinds of political games here in washington. we should be focused on what are we doing to protect them. and that's not easy, by the way. it's going to require resources and tough judgments and tough calls, and there are a whole bunch of diplomats out there who know they're in ha
9:01am
a ponerme en el lugar de el p i willing to step up. i'm willing to put myself in harm's way because i think that this mission is important in terms of serving the united states and advancing our interests around the globe. so we dishonor them when we turn things like this into a political circus. what happened was tragic. it was carried out by extremists inside of libya. we are out there trying to hunt down the folks who carried this out and we're trying to make sure that we fix the system so it doesn't happen again. >> thank you. on the issue of the opposition in syria -- >> we've just passed noon eastern time.
9:02am
we'll pause here to give some of our stations to return to local programming. others will be staying with us as we continue our coverage. >> as i said in my statement, that's exactly what we're doing. we're continuing to examine and look at the embargo and see whether we need to make further changes to it. i do believe that there is more we can do alongside technical advice, assistance, help, in order to shape them. in order to work with them. and to those who doubt that approach, i would just argue that, look, if we don't help the syrian opposition. we do recognize as being legitimate. who signed up to a statement about a future for syria that is democratic, that respects the rights of minorities. if we don't work with that part of the opposition, we shouldn't be surprised if the extremist elements grow. i think being engaged with the syrian opposition is the right approach. that is an approach i share with the president and with other
9:03am
colleagues in the european union. >> prime minister, you're talking here today about a new eu deal. now members are talking about leaving. what is your message to them and those pushing for an early referendum. if there were a referendum, how would you vote? mr. president, you told him that you want a strong eu and. how center are you that they are now openly contemplating withdrawal? and on syria, if i may, a question to both of you. what gives you any confidence that the russians are going to help you on this? >> well, first of all on the issue of the referendum. there won't be a referendum tomorrow and there's a very good reason why there won't an referendum tomorrow. would it give the british public an entirely false choice between status quo which i don't think is acceptable.
9:04am
i want to see the european union change. i want to see britain's relationship with the european union change and improving. it would be a false choice between status quo is that leaving and i don't think that is the choice the british public want or the british public deserve. everything do i in this area is guided by a very simple principle. what is in the national interests of britain. is it in the national interests of britain to have a transatlantic trade deal that will to make it more open and competitive and flexible. to improve britain's place within the european union. it is not only in our national interests, it is achievable. europe has to change because the single currency is driving change for that part of the european union that is in the single currency. just as they want changes, so i
9:05am
believe britain is quite entitled to ask for and get changes in response. then finally, is it in britain's national interest once we have achieved those changes but before the end of 2017 to consult the british public in a proper full-on referendum, yes, i believe it is. that's the approach that we take. everything driven by what is in the british national interests. that's what i'm going to deliver. it is absolutely right for our country. it has very strong support throughout the country and in the conservative party. that's exactly what i'm going to do. on the syrian issue, you asked a question. what are the signs of russian engagement. i had very good talks with president putin on friday. and we had a very frank conversation in that we have approached this to some extent still do approach this in a different way. i have been very vocal in supporting the syrian opposition and saying that assad has to go.
9:06am
that he is not legitimate and i continue to say that. it is in both our interests that at the end there is a stable democratic syria. there is a stable neighborhood and that we don't encourage the growth of violent extremism. and i think both the russian president, the american president, myself, i think we can all see that the current trajectory of how thing are going is not actually in anybody's interests so it is worth this major diplomatic effort which we are all together leading, this major diplomatic effort to bring the parties to the table to achieve a transition at the top in syria so that we can make the change that country needs. >> with respect to the relationship between the u.k. and the e.u., we have a special
9:07am
relationship with the united kingdom. and we believe that our capacity to partner with a united kingdom that is active, robust, outward and engaged with the world is hugely important to our own interests as well as the word. and i think the u.k.'s participation in the e.u. is an expression of its influence. and its role in the world as well as obviously a very important economic partnership. now ultimately, the people of the u.k. have to make decisions for themselves. i will say this. that david's basic point that you probably want to see if you can fix what is broken in a very important relationship before
9:08am
you break it off. makes some sense to me. and that i know david has been very active in seeking some reforms internal to the e.u. those are tough negotiations. you have a lot of interests involved. i recognize that. but so long as we haven't yet evaluated how successful those reforms will be, i at least would be interested in seeing whether or not those are successful. before rendering a final judgment. again, i want to emphasize, these are issues for the people of the united kingdom to make a decision about. not ours. with respect to syria, i think david said it very well. if you look objectively, the entire world community has an i
9:09am
in which the syrian people are not being slaughtered, that is an island of peace as opposed to a potentially an outpost for extremists. that's not just true for the united states. that's not just true for great britain or countries like jordan and turkey that border syria but that's also true for russia. and i'm pleased to hear that david had a very constructive conversation with president putin shortly after the conversation that had taken place between john kerry and president putin. i've spoken to president putin several times on this topic and our basic argument is that as a
9:10am
leader on the world staining, russia has an interest as well as an obligation to try to resolve this issue in a way that can lead to the kind of outcome that we would all like to see over the long term. and look, i don't think it is any secret that there remains lingering suspicions between russia and other members of the g-8 or the west. it has been several decades now since russia transformed itself and the eastern bloc transformed itself. but you know, some of those suspicions still exist. part of my goal and john kerry's goal has been is to break down those suspicions. if in fact we can broker a
9:11am
peaceful political transition that lead to assad's departure but a state in syria that is still intact, that accommodates the interests of all the ethnic groups, the religious groups inside of syria, and that ends the bloodshed. stabilize the situation. that's not just good for us. that will be good for everybody. we'll be very persistent in trying to make that happen. i'm not promising that it is going to be successful. frankly sometimes once the fe r furies have been unleashed in a place like syria, it is very hard to put things back together. and there are going to be enormous challenges in getting a credible process going even if russia is involved.
9:12am
because we still have other countries like iran and nonstate actors like hezbollah that have been actively involved. and on the other side we have organizations like alnasra. so all that makes a couple bustible mix and it will be challenging. it is worth the effort and what we can tell you is that we're always more successful in any global effort when we've got a strong friend and partner like great britain by our side and strong leadership by prime minister david cameron. thank you very much, everybody. >> you have been watching a joint press conference in the east room of the white house. president obama and the prime minister of great britain, david cameron addressing a wide range issues. >> no question about it. talked about the irs scandal. voice someday outrage if it

really changed you. why do you think that women need to take control of their fertility and why this call to action? >> i think originally i really wanted to write the book to become the voice of the reproductive generation to draw awareness to them, that if they really want to become mothers it's going to take some thinking and preparedness, so you know, the idea that this reproductive generation, us, you know, the younger ones behind us, the ones that are struggling right now to get pregnant they realize they need to make it an annual commitment to go to their abgyn and get checked, their hormone levels, simple that you can ask your doctor about and it's essential. if you want to be a parent it's going to get very complicated once you're 35 and we can talk -- >> you were in your mid-30s. you were 34 and at the time you had just come off "law & order"
9:34am
and success and all of that followed you, but did you at some point place career over fertility? is that what happens and when it came time to deciding when you wanted a family you discovered you couldn't? >> the last thing that i expected to happen to me was that at 34 i would go to pretty much a routine checkup with my obgyn and found out i had accelerated ovarian aging like basically i was never going to get pregnant naturally, and i thought 34, how could that be happening to me? i had put my career first but not consciously so now that i've written this book by doctor, dr. sahekian, who contributed to the book, told me women who are 35, 1 out of 200 women will get pregnant naturally their first time off. when you are 40 it becomes in the high thousands. how can that be? i mean, we're thinking about it

from the point of view we're still young still building our careers in our 30s and 40s are the new 20s. you're not thinking at 38, wow, this ship might have passed me by. >> you say it is sort of a dirty little secret especially in hollywood where they place currency in women with their baby pumps and you see it over the covers of magazines and you say those women who parade around with their perfect new baby leaves out the major detail she did not conceive naturally but had to do ivf, i believe that is a sin of omission, it is a lie and hurts women. you're telling other women in hollywood time to let people in on the secret. >> if there's one thing this book accomplishes, if women can make it an annual part of their lives that they go and get checked every year and that they are aware of this subject then this book has accomplished something that means something to me because i want to create a higher consciousness and awareness for the reproductive generation that they know that

money" what's it worth? have you ever wondered if that antique keepsake or collectible you've been keeping around your house has value? jean chatzky is here with kate waterhouse an appraiser. >> nice to see you. >> this is a fun segment, we have good things and one of these is going for a lot of money today. jean this is a landscape painting from diane in new york. >> by the artist anthony thome. she paid $1,200, she can't remember if it's with or without the frame but this is one of those situations where somebody in a gallery said to her you should have a painting by this artist because the value is going up. >> kate, what do you think? >> might not be wrong. to be honest this artist who is known for urban scenes not necessarily wooden landscapes but it's still attractive and pretty. it's got nice, bright colors. it could continue to increase in value. she bought it in a gallery.
9:50am
$500 is good when we talk fair market to gallery prices. >> continental guilt art nouvea nouveaux. >> this is from carol in florida, frequently you grow up with something. this was in her house, passed down from her grandmother. she has no idea what it's worth. she looked it up and realized it's from france, but beyond that she had no idea. >> that makes sense. lot of these bronzes are not actually bronze, they're gilt metal over based metal. it's originally french, we can tell in this instance because it's the base metal it's worth $350, if it was the bronze closer to $1,200, $1,500. >> the lesson from this one, don't clean this. this was cleaned and cleaned and cleaned. it's probably reduced the value. >> just let it be but up to 1,200. the pez dispensers looked like they were part of the shot, separate item.
9:51am
how much can a pez dispenser be worth? >> these are from kathy in indiana, they can be worth a ton of money. these are more recent pez dispensers, given to her kids over the last 20 years, that's not such great news, right? >> no, it's not and it's interesting, the older ones talking from the 1950s, those pez are worth quite a bit of money, a few thousand dollars per piece. these are all from the 1970s and '8 '80s and for the entire collection probably a little less than $100. >> even with all the "star wars" guys? that's call, bobafet. i'm told erica has never been more excited about a segment than this one. this is her find, shoes with a wedgewood heel, jean tell us the story. >> erica's mother bought these shoes in saks fifth avenue, wore them in her wedding in 1954 and
9:52am
erica wore them in her wedding. they were purchased for $100. >> even with the wear, these are really desirable and unfortunately in this instance while they are not actually the wedgewood backs, they were done in the manor of, and so therefore we say well, $150 in value even with wear those have actually increased in value, which is fine. >> erica has to be happy with that, 150 bucks, that's beautiful pictures. there she is. she's happy. 150 bucks richer, excellent. >> move on to this one, an incredible piece, a world series pin from the 1912 series that pit the boston red sox and the new york giants. >> william bought it at a flea market in massachusetts for $1 and it's worth substantially more. >> the reason it's worth more, i'll go over this quickly because it's all in one piece. normally you find the press pin at the top, the ribbon for the metal at the bottom, all intact,
9:53am
$10,000. >> ten grand for that pin. what makes it so special? >> it was the second time they did this for the press ever in its entire history so it was just the second year they had done it. for this material if you're looking to get a good idea, this is esoteric and out of everyone's element, ha.com or artfact perfect places to google and see what happens. >> seven games in 1912, pretty good. we have to come back next time and do the gold calculator. >> tweet us your stuff. >> tweet us your stuff. if you have a family heirloom you think may have hidden value, go to today.com, send us a picture and we may feature it next time. we're back in a moment. this is "today" on nbc.
